Every year students graduate against almost insurmountable odds to enter the Canadian workforce — building healthier communities and a stronger nation.
Staff in Arup’s Toronto office participated in several activities to raise funds for the Children’s Aid Foundation; for the creation of two scholarships for post-secondary students and tutoring programs for high school students. 82% of scholarship recipients graduate post-secondary schools compared to 60% of the general population. The tutoring programs are available to high school students to better enable them to graduate.
Activities included running in a marathon, donating goods for an auction, and volunteering at the CAF holiday party, with the overall goal of increasing the number of at-risk children graduating from 30% to a more acceptable percentage.
